Temple of the Forbidden Eye

This being my very first post of a project I made is a bit daunting. So here goes! I am building this to add to my O scale train set. The model can be found on the Disney Experience site. The Disney Experience

The Temple is quite a project with 491 pieces. The finished width is 13 inches, height 21 inches and the depth is 16 inches.That being said, it is a little too large for my train layout. At first, I tried several printer settings to get it down to fit into my available real estate. I wound up printing two pages per sheet and went to work. That gave me something about 13 inches high and about 8 inches on the sides. (And saved on paper!)

The directions are very important on this build. I often built a part then had an "ah ha" moment and printed out the part again. Mine is made of 65 lb. card. I have a few more in progress photos for the next post.

Great! Glad to see you've started a build thread. Nice work on the dome.
This is a great hobby for the retiree - interesting, time-consuming, rewarding - and about as inexpensive a hobby as you can find.

You're right, the temple is really B. I. G. big for an O gauge environment.

I used it as-is for several years on my Christmas display since I needed to fill the space while I worked on other things. When the time came to rebuild it, I scaled it back to a model about 40% of the original size:

Have fun!

The temple looks Great.
Would be fabulous terrain for an Indiana Jones roleplaying game.
